TN : Mendel Malbec 2007, Mendoza, Argentina


All of the grapes came from a vineyard situated in Lujan de Cuyo at an altitude of 1000 metres. The vineyard was planted in 1928. The wine spent twelve months in new French barriques. 5500 cases were bottles. Roberto de la Mota was the winemaker.



I purchased this wine 16 months ago and maybe it was tasting better then. Some of the primary fruit seems to have faded.

Colour : Dark red, blue hues

Aroma : Blueberry, blackberry, herbs, oak

Taste : Fading blackberry, plums, oak, very drying finish with no fruit

Alcohol : 14%

Price : 169 SEK

Mark : C+

Website : Mendel Wines

Instead of living in a dilatory attic area with costly rent, why not try shared lodging like a hostel?
